Bradley Cooper Joins Board of Camp for Seriously Ill Children

After spending a summer volunteering as a camp counselor for Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a program for seriously ill children, in 2006, Bradley Cooper has decided to devote even more time to the organization by joining its board. More from Variety, which, side note, is full of Philly celeb news today:

“When I spent a week at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp as a counselor, I was amazed at how the spirit of Camp is able to help kids facing so much escape their illness, make fast friends and remember what being a kid is all about,” said Cooper, who volunteered during a summer session for children with immunology disorders such as HIV/AIDS. “I am excited to be joining The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s Board of Directors at a time when the organization is growing its services to bring the magic of Hole in the Wall to even more children and families throughout the Northeast, including my hometown of Philadelphia, where the Hospital Outreach Program is bringing Camp fun to kids at their bedsides.”

And the crowd says, “awwwwwwwwwwww.”
